Against a tide of well-financed fossil fuel money, green energy is catching on, and it doesn't look like it's going away any time soon. For instance, 2013 was a banner year for solar power, with more solar energy coming online than the average nuclear power plant can generate.   Rivera Sun and Getch talk with Bill Brown, of the Climate Reality Project. We discuss the rise of green energy in the face of high finance, fossil fuel resistance, this week on Occupy Radio.

It's tough to ban fracking, Occupiers, when the frackers own your state.  Denton voted to ban fracking in their town, but because there is so much money at stake, the State of Texas overturned Denton's Fracking ban. It's now illegal to ban fracking in Texas. Will Wooten joins Occupy Radio to talk about Frack Free Denton. Dave Degraw also joins the show to talk about Exit Media, activism's answer to Facebook.  Frack Free Denton:   http://frackfreedenton.com/ Fracking Battle in Texas Not...

In Kentucky v King, the United States Supreme Court, ruled police don't need a warrant to enter private homes under emergency circumstances. Now, throughout America, police are routinely knocking down doors without warrants and often, opening fire on the startled people they find inside.   I join John Whitehead, author of A Government of Wolves: the Emerging American Police State,  and we discuss whether America already is a police state, this week on Occupy Radio.

Occupy Radio: Dangerous Signals in the Electoral Data, with Dr. Beth Clarkson 11/5/2015 0 Comments   It’s a bad look for the beacon of Democracy, Occupiers. The people of the United States are beginning to question the sanctity of our vote. In the next presidential election, nearly a third of the population will cast votes that leave no sort of public record. If you can’t count the votes, you have to look for little signals in the meta data to find evidence of electoral foul play. Dr. Beth...
